It's a dark day for the waning grit-laden legacy of 190 Bowery. It's become increasingly evident over the past several months, as the former Germania bank building was acquired and scraped clean by big-name firm RFR Realty, that the building is gearing up for an expensive overhaul. But nothing makes that as clear as actually seeing banners advertising its "Prime Retail Corner" plastered over the now graffiti-free facade. Bowery Boogie points out that the building is still on the market with RFR so its exact fate isn't sealed, but whatever it is probably involves lots of dollar signs.
